Hello everyone! Today I'll be reviewing the Zoeva Rose Golden Palette.

Go check her out on instagram and please say hi for me and that I sent you there ^_^.

Lets start with the review, the palette came in safely wrapped with a bubble wrap that secure the palette safely while its been shipped to me. First thing that I noticed when I got the palette I was so amazed how the palette looks like, it comes in a rectangular cocoa earth/y brown color palette. It has metallic copper decals with a key printed on the center of the surface. Plus the name of the palette which is Rose Golden. I also saw how the palette weighs which indicates on the bottom right corner.

The actual is inside the hard-soft high quality card board cover:
The actual palette has the same color of the card cover it has their brand name on the middle top portion of the palette and has a decals design and a printed key on the center and the name of the palette on the bottom middle of the palette.Plus at the back has the ingredients, net weight, where it is made and distributed.  
Here's what the palette looks like from the inside, it consist of 10 eyeshadow colors:
Again it has a key logo on the middle center of the palette:
The palette has a hard transparent cover, covering and protecting the eyeshadows which is a A+ for me because I want the eyeshadows protected in the side from any accidents I may do to it and it won't damage the eyeshadows. 
I noticed that there are (7) metallic eyeshadow colors and (3) matte eyeshadow colors.
Looking from the eyeshadows love how stunning each look because in actual life they are so beautiful colors. Each eyeshadows also has specific names on the palette:
"Luster, Reflective Elegance, Copper is King, Shining Bright, Rusty Petals, Foil, Just A Rose, Golden Rule, Harmony, Wonder Full."
Couldn't resist getting my hands on the palette, so I had a few swatch on my fingers. I was pretty amazed how each colors that I swatched was super super pigmented with just one swatch of my fingers.
The palette comes in a unique more feminine style, more like a greek princess  goddess     palette
The palette does not have a mirror on the inside if of the palette
The palette is light weight, it's not too heavy nor too light 
The palette is made with high quality material which I like the most
Has a hard transparent plastic to help protect the eyeshadows
Each eyeshadows are super pigmented, no fall outs, no chalky residue

I love how the palette looks like, with its unique style , how it was made, but the only thing that concerns me is I hoped they'd put a mirror inside the palette so that it won't be too difficult to reach in every time for your mirror while applying the eyeshadows on the palette. I love how each eyeshadow has their own unique names, plus for each pigment these eyeshadows are super super super pigmented. So no doubt about each eyeshadows since there are (7) metallic colors, each doesn't have any fall outs at all nothing at all. For the remaining (3) matte colors each are also pigmented and doesn't have that chalk/y residue and fall outs also. For this palette I'd give this a 10/10 because its so gorgeous, perfect for any occasions to wear and give those eyes that glamourous fierce Goddess Look.

That ends my review I hope you liked my review about this palette, and honestly I am now in love with this palette because it has the colors that I can play around with and blend the eyeshadows to my own likings.  
For any comments and concerns feel free to contact me.
Till next time as always Take care & "simply love life always"

EverBilena HAUL

Hey everyone! I have got a haul to share with you guys and these are my top favorite local brand here in the Philippines and it's everbilena Cosmetics. I was at the mall just doing my regular thing window shopping and could not resist to check what's new on their counter. I saw lots of new stuff at the everbilena from blushes to eye palettes, lashes, lip products and more. I bought 1 pair of eyelashes which is called the "DEMI" ones and also their lash glue. Then I have seen my other Co- Pinay Youtubers raving for the Liquid lipstick and saw a lot of good comments and just had to get one for myself, so I just got one because I wanted to use this and change up my on the go everyday lippies. I got in the shade soft Lace which is a neutral pink good for everydays. Then I got their new released lip product which was the Matic Lipstic, and from the outer face of the lipstick to me it kinda look like a stabilo pen (hehehehe! ) but it's a automatic lipstick were you twist the base and the bullet will eventually pull up. I got in the shade "PLUSH PETAL". Next I got a their new blush palette which is a duo blush and but before moving on quick short story about this is that, the sales lady was starring at me watching me swatch every blush because I was trying to decide what blush suits me, and then she came up to me and said : "Ma'am Nag mamakeup po kayo?" , and I was like "Opo, bakit po?" she said : "Hindi kasi halata ma'am kasi natural lang face niyo, yong walang makeup nagyon" and I was just smiling and saying : " Salamat po Miss hehe kayo lang kasi nakapansin nun saakin eh :) " . I was happy about her compliment because honestly I do love makeup, I love to wear them but I do not want to go fully pack on more stuff on my face usually because, I had a skin problem during the past, dealing with combination skin which is oily to dry skin, then having brow acne which is always seen on my top brow areas and scars on my face from popping pimples (my bad :/) and discoloration and also melasma. So recently I do not abuse my face instead putting minimum like doing brows, blush, no masacra's sometimes because I do have itchy eyes sometimes, then minimal blush and lip tints. That's all. Plus with my regular face routine and my dermatologist right facial care medicine my skin started to clear up bit by bit. But enough said of my skin I may be doing a separate blog about my skin if you want me to. ^_^ So moving on to my last two products, I got the blush duo in "SUMMER FLING" which I believe is the darkest shade because I like the blush which was like a deep orange/y color and matte earth/y brown for your contour. So everbilena was so unique to design such blush duo's because you can save up your money instead of buying single blushes, you go with their duo's because they included 1 shade for your contour. Lastly I got their new eye palette which is in the color "PINK", and they're (5) shimmers and (1) matte eye shadow. I got this because it is versatile for me to use to add sweetness to my eyes if I feel going for a pretty girl makeup look kind of thing/y. So that ends my haul, I hope you all liked my haul and for the prices by the way for each product here it is:

  1. Lashes "DEMI"                         -  Php 195.00
  2. Eye lash glue                          -  Php   60.00
  3. Liquid Lipstick "SOFT LACE"     -  Php 180.00
  4. Matic Lipstick "PLUSH PETAL"   - Php 180.00
  5. Blush Duo "SUMMER FLING"       - Php 220.00
  6. Eyeshadow Palette "PINK"        - Php 150.00
                                              TOTAL : P985.00 only ^_^

Till next time as always Take care & "simply love life always"

Lime Crime Velvetines Liquid Matte Lipstick | REVIEW & SWATCH

Hello everyone! Here's my review on the Lime Crime Velvetines Liquid Matte Lipstick, honestly I have read some good positive feedbacks on these liquid matte lipsticks, from each shades I have seen I wanted to have one for myself but it is way too expensive, talking about Lime Crime products since it's a high end cosmetics today. So I was hoping to find a alternatives to the lime crime one's and luckily I have found a replica of them. I bought these Lime Crime matte liquid lipsticks on a online shop called sissyshoppe they sell a lot of Singapore Authentic cosmetics, like the replica ones while the original ones are U.S Authentic , so it's a whole lot difference between them plus they're safe to use, Class A high end replica, hypoallergenic. I got three shades which cost Php 100.00 each for whole sale 6 pcs - 95 each, 12 pcs - 90 each and 24 pcs - 80 each. They're 24 hours lasting, liquid to matte lipsticks & high pigmented.I got three shades which are Pink Velvet, Cashmere and Salem.
Product Info:
* Product Name: 
Lime Crime Velvetines Liquid Matte Lipstick
* Shade Names: 
Pink Velvet, Cashmere, Salem
* Net Weight:
* Price: 
Php 100.00 each
whole sale 6 pcs - 95 each, 12 pcs - 90 each and 24 pcs - 80 each
* Where did you bought these lipsticks?

Check them out on Facebook & on Instagram:
IG : sissyshoppe
The lipsticks comes in a pretty girly glam floral red box with flowers printed on top and the box has a metallic matte finish.At the back of each box has each color shade labels which indicates "Makeup for Unicorns" plus the ingredients and the name of the specific shade next to the bar code label.
Once you open each box you'll eventually see the lipsticks packed inside with a cut out card positioned on the right side which helps secure each lipsticks stay still inside the box. Plus on the bottom has the name shades of the liquid matte lipsticks.
The actual lipsticks comes in a see through semi plastic glass containers with a glam red cap.
You can already see the actual color of each lipsticks and each shade names indicated at the bottom.
I like the fact that the liquid lipsticks can stand alone on my table which I like so it won't just roll off by itself.
Each liquid lipsticks comes with sponge applicator, the applicator itself is not too big and not too small just the right size which I like about it because it doesn't make the product spill when you put back on the cap on. 
From the darkest shade which is called "SALEM" it's a combination of brown/ish tones with minimal earthy brown. For the lightish shade that I got which is "CASHMERE" it has a pink and blue under tone to it but a little nude finish to it but doesn't come too dark but in between. The last shade which is "PINK VELVET" is a blu/ish pink undertone and has a bright pink finish. 
I notice that the liquid matte lipsticks has a smooth formula , not too dripping water/y at all. Plus I made a drying time test to check and see how fast does these lipsticks take time to dry. Approximately it dried up to 5 seconds. That was fast enough for me because the shades are very pigmented and matte finish. 
I also made a smudging wipe off test and I just used my regular cleansing wipe to see of they come off easily. After wiping about a few times, I have to say that the staying power of these lipsticks are hard to wipe off. It stained my skin as you can see on the photo below.
Now to give it a final verdict which is to test it on my dry lips, and yes I do have dry crack/y lips:
1st Color Swatch "CASHMERE"
2nd Color Swatch "PINK VELVET"
3rd Color Swatch "SALEM"
- The first observation is for the application I mentioned a while that I like the applicator because its in the right size for apply the lipstick and yes it is, because I have more control with the product like lining my lips before filling the entire lips. 
Next, I noticed that the formula was super smooth on my dry crack/y lips which didn't give me a hard time applying it all over my lips.
I also noticed that when I missed a spot on my lips like a tiny one, I re-apply the lipstick and it didn't dry that much which blended in well before the actual drying time.
It has that sweet minimal scent but not too much at all.
I noticed also that once it gets to it's point of drying it has that chalky feeling when rubbing my lips together.
Ii feels light on my lips not too heavy at all. 
- Each shades are very pigmented.
Lastly I thought that the lightest shade which was CASHMERE would give me a problem with regards to the appearance on my lips because it is dry and crack/y and my lips are the worst when it comes to light nude shades but I was really impressed that the color blended well on lips.Little cracks are seen but not too much. For the "PINK VELVET" which is a bright pink/y shade made my teeth appear one shade whiter and few cracks seen on my lips. Lastly for the darker shade which is "SALEM", the color is stunning when my lips are stretched out on a smile but when it's naturally relaxed or still I could see the cracks on my lips.    
Next observation was I tried the wiping method and it was a little too difficult for me to wipe off the product on my lips because it is smooth and matte but once you try to wipe it off you'll find the tiny bits of the liquid lipstick product transferred on the wet wipes. It's tiny bits, kind of rubber/y thing. Plus the darker shade which was "SALEM" stained my lips.

- I like the fact that the price for a replica class A High end is much affordable to buy.
I like everything about how it is made that comes in a sleek standard glass plastic type lip gloss container and has each specific shade names on the bottom.
I did not have any allergic reactions while applying this onto my lips plus I like that it works just fine with my dry crack/y lips with the light colors, but what concerns me is the darkest color which was salem I was little worried because it made my dry crack/y lips a bit noticeable but not to be judge mental, maybe I need to exfoliate my lips more and take good care with so that it may work better to my lips.
It did stain a little bit onto my lips so I had a hard time wiping it off with my facial wipes, so I recommend removing it properly with any cleansing oil like I have which is my Biore Cleansing Oil and it instantly removed the entire lip product off my lips.
Before ending this review to rate this pretty Liquid MAtte Lipsticks i'd give it a 7/10 because it works just fine for me plus Its much affordable to buy ^_^

Well I hope you all enjoyed reading my review and swatch about this replica of the Lime Crime Velvetines Liquid Matte Lipsticks. Feel free to comment down below for any concerns. Other than that,

Till next time as always Take care & "simply love life always"
